Dress - Miss Selfridge, Cardigan - Primark, Bag - Mulberry, Necklace - Wired Jewellery 

Here's a few photos of what I wore to uni today. I bought this dress on a bit of a whim a few weeks ago. I love the maroony red colour of it and the fact it can be worn smart or casual. I seem to wear my bullet quartz necklace with everything these days too. Speaking of which there will be an opportunity on my blog really soon for one of you guys to win this amazing piece. Keep your eye out for it, I'll be positing the details in the next few days. 

So this week has been full of big and exciting news. First off Olly got offered his dream job! Which is amazing. It's crazy to think that out of the thousands of people who applied, he managed to get through and land one of the positions. I'm so happy for him! Secondly, I've been asked to take part in Write Now, part of Aye Wright! Glasgow's Book Festival. I'm going to be performing one of my short stories at it tomorrow. It will be my first public reading, so I'm pretty nervous. I don't really enjoy public speaking but sometimes you've got to push your comfort zones, especially when it's a big opportunity like this. If you're interested I'll be publishing the short story I'm reading on my new writing blog, which I'll be launching asap. Thanks very much to those of you who have asked about it, it's great to know people are interested in my writing.
